HES Alumni Sends Update From Medical School

Anna Livingstone, a 2020 Health Science graduate, has written to us regarding her first year at medical school. Anna was a Still Scholar, meaning she was granted early acceptance to A.T. Still University (ATSU) where she is studying to become a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine. She writes that she enjoys med school, with the academic rigor of labs, workshops, and patient encounters ensuring she is never bored. She also writes that her experience has made her very thankful for the education she attained as an undergraduate student at Truman, stating that Truman gave her a solid background that allows her to succeed. In talking about her peers, she feels that the preparation Truman provides its pre-medical students gave her a leg up, and she attributes this to the labs, intimate class sizes, and the relationships she was able to form with her professors. In offering advice, Anna says, “Enjoy your time at Truman, and take advantage of all the opportunities available to you.” We wish her the best of luck as she continues her journey and are excited to watch her continue down her path of success.
